pearl-thGet Your Goat  - Things just “goat” serious on PATH400! We’ve brought 27 goats and their audacious appetites to the trail where they will spend about a month clearing out kudzu, poison ivy and anything else in their path. You can help by sponsoring a goat. The crew is full of entertaining personalities, so check out our gallery and get your goat before they’re gone!

Construction Begins On First Phase Of PATH400  - This Winter’s ice and snow may have caused a delay, but just three years after the concept was first proposed, construction on a 5.2-mile, multi-use trail running parallel to GA 400 is set to begin. Work on the first phase of PATH400 starts March 2014.

 

PATH400 Trail Overview

Identified as the spine of Buckhead’s future parks system in the Buckhead Collection, the PATH400 trail offers the community the opportunity to leverage lands in public ownership to develop a community amenity that will provide local recreational and social opportunities including walkable and bikable connections to local schools and the commercial business district as well as to the Atlanta Beltline.
